Maidstone right-back Aaron Simpson has joined Championship club Wolves.
Simpson impressed on trial last week and has signed a two-year deal, with the option of a third.
He will link up with Wolves immediately and go into their under-21 squad.
Maplesden Noakes sixth-former Simpson learned his trade with the Soccer Elite academy before breaking into United's first team this season.
Coach Lee Spiller told the Soccer Elite website: "After watching Aaron train at Wolves last week it came as no surprise to me that he has been offered a deal.
"Since we started working with Simmo as a 14-year-old, he has embraced and overcome every challenge he has faced; this includes joining our scholarship, facing up to top players in our pro fixtures, and then making his name in the semi-professional game at Whitstable and then at Maidstone in front of massive crowds.”
